Cowboys are Real Men
I have not seen this flick yet but I grew up watching these westerns at the Saturday Theater. The final fist fight was standard format for action adventures and westerns. It was simply axiomatic that Real Men don't pull their Irons if they could win a fair fight against the bad guy with their fists.
These flicks have a ethos all of their own...

A Good 1944 Western
This had a good plot, which progressed nicely to a good conclusion. The acting was fine for this action film.

Fist fights and horses
Why do cowboys always dismount so far from where they are going?
And if they carry guns, why do they fist fight?
Especially Rangers making an arrest?
This movie didn't keep my short attention.
Not enough western jargon I guess.

James Newill Heads Toward The Door
This is the next to last film that teamed James Newill with Dave O'Brien in the "Texas Rangers" series at PRC. The team-up had started back on the "Renfrew Of The Royal Mounted" series and more-or-less continued forward. As these type of westerns go, this one isn't half-bad. I'd even say it's a cut above other PRC westerns of that time period. Story may be a little muddled, but the action makes up for it for the most part. Charles King gets a special mention for his comedic dim-witted outlaw. This print is flawed, but watchable. Enjoy.
